I know no one looks at this anymore, but thought I would share my MT1 and MT2. I have converted them to short course trucks and couldn't be happier with the nitro version thus far and look forward to the electric conversion as well. I wish HPI would bring back the MT2 but in a short course version as it kicks A**. This is what it should have been in the first place.

Electric short course conversion. I believe HPI should sell a conversion which is easy. This is using HPI Blitz bumpers which bolted and lined up perfectly, couple pieces of aluminum, and one Axial dogbone. There were so many MT2s sold and they already have the tooling to repop these parts for the MT2. It handles and jumps with the best short course trucks out there. The Nitro version weighs only 6.023 lbs dirty with mud on it. Not sure what the electric will weigh, but as of now, just over 4 lbs.

Figured I'd give this a go on this thread and hopefully some of the 'old' boys on here will be able to help

Hey everyone,

I've been tinkering away previously on a Nitro HPI MT2, I've enjoyed setting it up and backyard bashing it around.

Now I've started my first and Final year at university to bump my Engineering Foundation Degree up to a full Masters Degree, part of the degree has to include a engineering project that takes up 40% of the total mark.

As such, I was looking at taking a 3D scan of my model's body shell and RC car, conducting computer fluid dynamics assessments and wind tunnel assessments on the model as is, and then re-engineering a 3D Cad body shell design and 3D print, and then re-analyse the printed shell against the wind tunnel and CFD.

What I'll be assessing is the cooling to the engine, the aerodynamics of the body shell itself and the dirt ingress into the RC Car. Looking to maximise cooling efficiency and reduce dirt ingress, whilst increasing aerodynamics of the car and bodyshell together.

Now the reason for this huge long winded post, is to see what suggestions and ideas, the masters (IE yourselves) would have to better the body / RC car.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Quinten.

Mines been sat in the shed for a year now, it's because of this project that i've pulled it out, have gone nuts getting hopups and a new G3.0 engine for it. Struggled finding a engine mount till I found a place in poland that still had it in stock. now just waiting for the massive list of parts to arrive from around the world. Suprisingly not a lot left out there at all for the MT2, apart from a few bashed and broken ones on fleebay.....

Hey guys,

I am reviving my brushless converted MT2 and the body I have is absolutely thrashed and garbage.Can anyone recommend a body that fits well? Preferably pre-painted as I don't have time or paints anymore to do that....
